Cessna 152

The Cessna 152 is by far the most popular training aircraft that has ever existed. The 152 series is a very economical, durable & reliable training platform. Even though the 152 is a 2 seat trainer we have many experienced private and commercial pilots that choose to rent the 150 because of the wonderful aerodynamics, ease of use and stability the aircraft has to offer, oh and let's not forget that the 152 is spin certified for those adrenaline junkies.

I am proud to announce that Academy of Aviation is the only flight school in the Northeast United States that has a full motion G1000, Enterga and tradaditional gauge instrument flight simulator. instrument rating flight training simulatorImmersing the pilot in the simulation is essential to selling sensation of flight. Sitting in a corner at a desktop trainer might help to train certain skills, but it will never be confused for real flight. You have to isolate the pilot and instructor from the outside world so that they can be totally focused on the simulation. That's why the Redbird FMX comes equipped with a light-weight aluminum cockpit enclosure. Not only does this help to immerse the pilot in the simulation, but it also isolates the student and instructor from outside distractions that can easily derail a training session.

instrument rating visual system simulatorA great visual system is essential for a training device to be truly effective and versatile. And if you want to train complex maneuvers such as turns around a point, circling approaches or even basic pattern work, one forward looking screen is not going to cut it. That's why we equipped the Redbird FMX with six monitors dedicated only to external views. This high-quality, wrap-around visual system helps to sell the sensation of flight and enhances training at all levels by allowing you to train procedures and maneuvers that are not possible with other flight training devices.
